Karel Petrus Cornelis de Bazel (1869-1923) is known in the Netherlands principally as an architect. He built many country villas in the Gooi (North Holland) and designed the headquarters of the Nederlandsche Handel Maatschappij in Vijzelstraat, Amsterdam. Less widely known is the extremely active and influential role he played in the field of interior design, working mostly according to his own theosophical principles. His customers belonged to the Dutch cultural elite. He even made furniture designs for the Royal Family.
